  1. I have a 2011 Cruze and they’re is absolutely no button inside for the trunk. Also, the past above the license plate doesn’t work. Any solutions to these things would be oh so greatly appreciated. And no, it’s not below Stereo to the left, unfortunately.

  2. The button by the license plate is just a barely detectable with your hand area about 3/4 inch long (It is there on mine) I use it all the time. It barely moves but press up on it and hold a second and the truck will open up.
